Elliptical Treehouse Djuren by Baumraum

To serve as a comfortable escape for a family on a wooded property in northern Germany, Baumraum have completed the “Treehouse djuren” around two large oaks. The structure is characterized by its egg-shaped profile, which is accentuated by elliptical windows and glossy white façade finish. The interior space is comprised of sleeping benches covered in gray felt, and provides many views to the forested context. From below, the treehouse is accessed via two ship ladders, which are separated by a lower terrace at a height of 3.8 meters above the ground plane. The second deck is located 5.6 meters in the air, and contains entry to the elevated pod. The small dwelling’s vertical load is carried by four inclined steel supports, while it is structurally stiffened through its connections to the trees. The two oaks also bear the weight of the two terraces, through a system of cables and textile straps. In contrast to the white ends of the egg-shaped pod, the volume’s underside as well as the terraces are made of wood, while the roof is clad in sheet zinc. A curved window is integrated into the rounded front facade, providing an additional view outward.

Tree House “King of Frogs”

Some time ago we’ve shown you luxury tree house “Eco Perch” and today you will see another creative example of tree house. Called “King of Frogs” and created by German brand Baumraum this house isn’t true tree house. It doesn’t rely on living trees for its structural support, it’s elevated on stilts overlooking a reflecting pond. This beautiful 92 square foot contemporary tree house and its almost 100 square foot terrace are located in a small private backyard in Münster, a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. What do you think about it?
